The criteria for these artistic exchanges is:
Originality: creativity, style, versatility
Technique: execution, difficulty level, vocabulary

The  exchanges happen on carefully selected epic, challenging, soulful, or abstract music varying from Michael Jackson, Beatles, Mozart, Biggie, Celia Cruz, Whitney Houston, Bee Gees, Beyonce, James Blake, Kaytranada, Beenie man, or a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack… You get the picture! It’s pure artistic debauchery every year.
